Top 10 open source interviews in 2014

This year on Opensource.com, we published a fantastic number of interviews with open source professionals. Our writers had the opportunity to talk to many talented leaders, engineers, community managers, and moreā€”all of them stars in their fields, at their companies.

Take these for example: CEO of Lulu.com Bob Young, Head of Open Source at Facebook James Pearce, and OpenStack Board of Directors member Tim Bell of CERN. Imagine for a moment all of the advice, experience, and stories that just these three people must have shared. But we did a whole lot more interviews than that, and you can comb through a large collection of them.

Here are my favorite 10 interviews on Opensource.com in 2014. I highly recommend you bookmark them today!

My life in open source, and the mentors who led the way

I have been working on the Apache http server for almost 20 years now. I[he]#039[/he]ve written 9 books about httpd, and spoken at more than fifty conferences. I[he]#039[/he]m a member of the Apache Software Foundation, where I serve as a board member and as Executive Vice President. I am responsible for putting on ApacheCon, both in North America and Europe, which is the official conference of the ASF.Each of these things, I do because someone encouraged me to do something that I knew, deep down, I was incapable of doing, and then cheered me on as I did it.
